Letter: In Brief

Sir: As Sue Arnold suggests, a good way to make young male drivers safer is to distance them from Steve McQueen-type images ("New drivers should wear bobble hats", 5 May). Why, then, did she pay the high premiums so that her 18-year-old son could drive their expensive new car? It is in such cars that other 18-year-old lads kill themselves, and others. If, instead, more parents bought their sons second-hand cars akin to Granny's ancient Honda, then perhaps there would be fewer accidents.
